OK, welcome to 2013 at Humming Lake Studio. I am looking, so much, forward to this great year of changes. This is truly the year of great possibilities, and it is my hope that it will be reflected in all that happens here in the North country (well OK not really that far north!) 2012 proved a productive year with many releases and 2013 will most likely start right off with a couple. Aside from music, don't you just feel the electricity in the air, as far as where the world wants to go? It has been said, "May you live in interesting times", and me thinks you have chosen wisely Padawan. The air is alive with opportunities for change, like ripe fruit just hanging heavily from branches and vines. Sometimes this is just so much more exciting than music ever was for me. Ah well....
As far as the studio goes.... Lots of interesting projects in various stages of completion.
. Mark Dix is working on a second project that has been growing lately. We've added some beautiful accordion tracks by Sonny Barbato, some piano tracks, and soon some more vocal tracks. we'll be getting in Robin Winter, and Bill Mantone for some backing vocals, and we'll be bringing this one into home base soon!
Randall Kromm has finished another fine CD that was released right around Thanksgiving. A holiday CD that is just pleasantly filled with lyrcs, melodies, singing and family that will get anyone with a pulse in good spirits.
Marc Bridge is back in working on his second CD. From the sound of the songs it's looking to be a great follow-up to "American dReam" his first effort. I always look forward to hearing a new Marc Bridge song, because I know I'll be smiling when it's done!
Leslie Lee and Steve Gretz will most likey be finishing up their project this month. Lost of great songs, singing, and variety as they stretch their musical wings a little wider on this one. It has been fun watching this one grow!
Licia Sky will be releasing her CD that we recorded in December soon... I hope! Great songs, lyrics and a unique way of describing her world. Not to be missed.
Check back here for more projects to be started in the very near future.
And again I must thank every one of them for coming here to do their projects. I believe we are all using our musical talents to make the world a better sounding place, and share songs that will make people think and feel better.
As the this great year unfolds, I look forward to more sessions, and some more great gigs... as a solo and with some new formations of musicians that have already proved to be promising. I'll also be going out with some new instruments besides guitar, that I've been working on in my cave over the winter/spring (I'll spare you the violin for just a little while!). Hope you enjoy these new sounds as much as I have had in workin' them up!
